Suited for cell culture under sterile conditions
Omi, automated organ-on-chip platform[O-OMISC-PTF]
- New release
A one-of-a-kind innovative Organ-on-Chip Platform
Omi is an automated platform that helps reproduce the microphysiological behavior of organs inside microfluidic chips. It is compatible any type of chips to sustain different cell culture types or organ on chip models (Liver, Gut, Skin…)
- Designed for biology
Can be used with any microfluidic chip design
Automated and fully integrated platform
Intuitive interface and technology for beginners and advanced researchers
Step up your organ on chip game!
If you’re performing organ-on-a-chip or 3D cell culture experiments, and want a simple setup for automated medium perfusion and recirculation that will fit in an incubator and be compatible with microscopy imaging?
Features of the cell culture platform
Fully integrated platform
Omi can perform user customized protocol including perfusion, recirculation, injection and sampling.
Compact and transportable
The device is designed to fit in incubators and can be easily transported to a microscope for imaging or cell analysis while maintaining perfusion.
Set up and monitor your protocols on Omi’s application’s user friendly interface with WIFI.
Inject cell or fresh medium, deliver test compounds, collect samples without disconnecting the microfluidic chip and disturbing the shear stress conditions of the experiments.
Completely autonomous platform
2-hour battery allows for transport from incubator to imaging system.
Control your experiments with Fluigent’s Omi
Omi, automated organ-on-chip platform, can perform any perfusion protocol. It has the ability to customize and automate any protocol that includes simple perfusion, recirculation, sampling and injection. It meets the needs of both beginners in cell culture research and advanced Organ-on-Chip researchers who seek automation and reproducibility.
Designed to fit in incubators, and easy to transport to a microscope for imaging or cell analysis.
This versatile and automated organ-on-chip platform can perform long term cell culture under flow to control shear stress conditions. Its two-hour autonomy battery and Wifi connectivity ensure easy and intuitive monitoring. It can easily be transported from an incubator to a microscope to perform live cell imaging while maintaining cell perfusion under battery power.
Reproducibility and experiment duplication have never been this easy!
Omi can be used in different modes :
Single mode : signel channel perfusion for cell culture, such as blood vessel reproduction
Dual mode : double channel perfusion for co culture to perform liquid/liquid interface or blood brain barrier reproduction by synchronizing two Omi with one organ-on-chip .
One incubator, several Omis
This space saving platform allows multiple Omis (in dual or single mode) inside a single incubator to reproduce a given experiment. Units can then be easily transported to a microscope for real-time monitoring.
A range of protocol functions possible with a single Organ-on-Chip Platform
Perfuse up to 4 mL of several types of liquids such as cell culture media for a long period of time in a controlled and reproducible way. The stability and precision of the perfusion allow control of the shear stress throughout any experiment.
Unidirectional recirculation of medium while maintaining a constant flow rate for a long period of time. Read our technical note on long term recirculation for organ on chip applications.
Sample up to 4 mL of soluble factors secreted in the culture medium for analysis or imaging.
Inject up to 4 mL of fresh medium during the experiments.
Omi is the perfect automated organ-on-chip platform for any organ-on-a-chip application. It allows the simulation of any organ
model, and by pairing several Omi together, one can model different interfaces for modeling of human organs.
The Omi is ideal for drug discovery, ADME-Tox, and other disease models.
